Setting defaut colourspace for a pdf

Is there a way to 'force' a pdf to open with 'Adobe RGB' as it's default display profile?

 

I'm creating a document in Indesign (document set-up Web), with the Adobe RGB colour profile. I'm exporting it with No Colour conversion. This document will never see print.

 

When I open this in Acrobat the colours look dull - but when I manually change the 'simulation' to Adobe RGB they pop as they should.

 

I need the document to open in this way rather than having to ask my client to manually change it, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this.

 

The RGB colors used are out of gamut for the CMYK space, so there's no suitable alternative. This choice is out of my control.

Did you embed the correct colour profile? What are your export settings in InDesign?

Using Adobe RGB for a document is a non sense, you should use sRGB IEC61966 instead.
